Kittehface does live wallpapers right

Wow, just downloaded the Jumpgate Free version one to my EVO 4G with CM7 and I must say I'm VERY impressed!

It runs super smooth and get this... The CPU consumption is only a bit heavy when it first loads and after a few short seconds the cpu idles dowm almost completely according to my SeePU graph in my notification area. No laggyness either when scrolling around or getting in and out of the launcher. I'm impressed! I might just use live wallpapers for a change!

I've only tried KittehFace's Blue Skies live wallpaper. It does drop the framerate of my home screens ever so slightly, but then again every live wallpaper I've seen does this including the stock ones. I'm a graphics whore and this drop isn't significant enough to matter for me.

Just throwing something out there, and I assume there is a way to support it:

The dev should offer an option for a $3-5 purchase to full versions of all wallpapers, this would include future releases as well. Expecting the average customer to pay more is asking too much, after all, BW IMO is more valuable and considerably cheaper.

I might've paid for 1 wallpaper, if that on my phone to date. To know that I have the support of the #1 dev in the community, I'd easily be able to pay $3 and maybe upto $5.

Any thoughts? Is this asking too much?

debated an edit, got to the end of the video (posted about half way through after seeing some I hadn't seen).

I think he said free versions downloaded "40 million times", imagine getting $3 from 10% of those, $12M is so much more than they are making right now.

Just random hypothetical numbers, I know.

Yeah, that explains how he can afford to go to Spain and rent a booth.

I've purchased on of his wallpapers in the past.

Oh man, those are nice. Consider me sold.

You did a fine marketing job there, Phil :P

Edit: I should add that I downloaded the Thunderstorm, and it's absolutely incredible. I'll drop a buck for that.

This guy is amazeballs. The wallpapers are slick, but I've always been more impressed by the customer service. He always emails me back within a day when I've found a problem with one of the live wallpapers, and it's always fixed in a day. One of the devs I'm happy to support by buying stuff.

I've got the snow fall & bamboo wallpapers are they are really cool and don't seem to cause any issues for me.

Their "City at Night" and "Silhouette" are some of my all-time-favorite live wallpapers! No noticable effect on performance or battery time.

Love the new "Blue Skies" and "Jumpgate"!

I just wish more of their live wallpapers would be tablet-friendly, ie work well in landscape mode... Blue Skies works (and looks) great at 7" though!
